About the network

Norway has a rich marine algal flora comprising more than 400 different seaweeds. Good knowledge of benthic algal taxonomy is not only of purely academic interest but is also vital e.g. for all marine monitoring on changes in coastal biodiversity.
In April 2005 a group of marine botanists connected to the University of Bergen started the Bergen Seaweed Group, and in 2009 it was extended to a national network of phycologists.
The main goals of the network are to strengthen interest and knowledge of benthic algal taxonomy, systematics and species identification, and to promote collaboration and exchange of information. One joint project is to develop material for species identification, including good pictures showing key characters.
Pictures produced by the network can be viewed in the lists of species (Green, Brown and Red seaweeds). The pictures are marked “seaweeds.uib.no”, and may be used freely e.g. in lectures and other presentations provided a reference to the photographer and the web page is included. Any commercial use must be negotiated beforehand. Any non-negotiated use of the pictures on web sites other than seaweeds.uib.no are not allowed.

The lists of species contain well documented observations of algae species in Norway, but should not be considered as checklists. About the species lists.
